rouTLANi), Mk., April 2, 1003. 

To THE Memuers of the Bihle Society of Maine: 

Dear Brethren: — In giving you the report of the past year's work 
of this Society, based upon the one given by our SuperinteiKhuit, to 
the Trustees, I call your tiioughtful attention to important facts, the 
great needs of, and our solemn duty in relation to, this ]iil)le Society 
whose work is one of vital importance to the moral and si»iritual wel- 
fare of this our beloved State, 

The workers for the year have been Mr. /. M. X'aughn, Mr. I. L. 
Corson and Miss Ida L. Fuller, of the old force, with Mr. (). ('. Farn- 
ham who was enlisted last May. Two others also have assisted tem- 
porarily. Tliis band of four men and one woman have acted during 
the year as agents, canvassers and missionaries, for they seem to 
occupy all these positions. They are persons of sterling ('hristian 
character, selected for their special interest in, and fitness for, the 
work. By their conscientious labors they have gained the confidence 
of your Trustees and Superintendent, and deserve also the confidence 
of the Society. 

The force has been smaller by one than the year l>efore. This 
seemed imperative because of a deficit reported last year and the year 
before, and of the determination of the Trustees that it should not be 
repeated this year. As a consequence of this smaller force, the terri- 
tory covered has been considerably less than usual and less than at 
first laid out for the year. One hundred small towns were open to us 
by reason of the rule to visit each town every seven or eight years. 
Of these but sixty-three were canvassed, together with twenty-one 
plantations of from six to sixty families. This smaller force accounts 
in part for the smaller number of families reached (some 15,(H)0 
against nearly 22,000 the year before. But this was in part also due 
to the scattered population of most of the towns canvassed. Some 
were so sparsely settled as often to require many miles of travel to 
reach but one or two families. And besides this the length of time 
required to make a call where there is destitution and need, and where 



G ANNUAL REPORT OF TIIK 

no Other form of mission work is done, is much greater than in more 
favored Iwalities. 

Instances of remarkable interest are reportexl where men and 
women were found liungry for help, where no pastor or Christian 
j>erson could be found resident in the neig^hborhood to give comfort, 
counsel or clieer. In some of these towns were found grown-up chil- 
dren who liad never attended any religious meeting. The benefit 
receiveil from the visit of an earnest Christian man or woman in such 
families, besides the supply of Bibles to the non-church-going, can 
never be adequately estimated. 

These then are the statistics for the year: Families visited dur- 
ing the year. 14,010. In 9 counties. 03 towns, 21 plantations: Number 
of families atteiuling no church, 7.232: number of families having no 
religious preference, :>.OCX): number of children in no Sunday School, 
5.344; number of families (other than Rom. Cath.) destitute, and sup- 
plied with Bibles, 404; number of days work done in all, 4)071; number 
of miles traveled, nearly 8.000: number volumes sold by the mis- 
sionaries (Bibles in whole or in part), 2,432: number of volumes sold at 
the Depository, about l.OOo; number of volumes donated by mission- 
aries and by order of Trustees, 853: making the whole number distri- 
butetl in the year, 4,28"); the total value of the same, $1,854.09. 

I call attention to two items in the above statistics: 14,91(> 
families visited the past year against nearly 22,000 the year before. 
Vet remember we have been fertilizing the more sterile, because the 
more sparsely i)opulated parts of our State. The sale of Bibles has 
also been small in comparison with some years, 2,432 only, sold by 
the missionaries in the held against 4,512, the year before. But here 
we must remember the homes reached have been largely those of the 
poor, and such as need the Bible and will make good use of it. 

True, there has been a small surplus of receipts in the year, above 
expenditures. But mark the next sad statement. This was due to 
■cutting down the wf)rk of the year one-third. What does this meah? 
It means a less number of missionaries have been employed; a less 
numlwr of calls have been made; a less number of i)eople supjylied 
with the Bible; a less number of persons reached for their spiritual 
jffKKl. Withal a splendid w<»rk lias been done witii the means used. 
These are the facts. What now are the needs? A deeper interest in 
the hearts of all Christians in our State, whose watchword shall be, 
"The Bible for Maine " 

Our Superintendent has been stimulating our churches to greater 
beni'volence for this Society, and raised $350.24 above last year, but 
the falling off of colleetions by missionaries, (Ui account of the; ]>()(irer 
diHtrirts canvassed and their gifts coming mostly in dimes and nickels, 
more than offset this. We have the men and wonien r(*ady to do the 
work, we have the bof»ks. the precious Bil)le, rj-ady for distribution. 
But we need money. Shall we boast of our financial and commercial 
prosperity and let this Society be retarded in its work for want of funds? 
No! 



niiu.K soriKTV or maink. t 

We need at least $1,(j<jo.(K) more for tlii.s work and it ought to Ikj 
easy to raise it. Let every member of this Society do what he can. 
I^et each church in th<* State he Htimulati'd to systematic contril)Uti<»n8 
for the Hi))Ic in Miiine, and we can put this greatest Missionary 
Society in Maine in a condition to perform tlie greatest possible good 
for the inhabitants of our State, for the salvation of souls, and the 
^(lory of (iod. Let us note these facts, consider the needs, and do our 
<luty. And (iod will ^I'^nt an increase of moral and spiritual p(»wer in 
our State. liespcctfully submitted,

Rkv. AlukktTeal Dunn, D. D., died in Watervillc. April 2, 1903. 
The iimmjil meeting' of the Society occurriiiK on tlie same day, Rev. J. 
C Perkins introduced the following resolve which was nnaninioiisly 
adopted and put on record: 

Even in the midst of the deepest pain and grief, before tlie loss of 
such a man to his family and friends, we are yet in our hearts most 
dee])ly conscious of sincere thanksgiving before the divine mercy and 
the gracious love of our Heavenly Father for the gift of Ilis life iierein 
revealed to us. 

We have been made to realize the blessed intimacy of fellowship. 
We have known the joy of precious associations. We have come face 
to fa(!e with splendid manhood. We have been inspired and helped by 
a tine courage and hojte, and a spiritual consecration. 

For seventeen years as Trustee, and the last nine as President, 
these powers have been poured out richly for the welfare of the Maine 
Hible Society. As president and trustee, the Christian strength of his 
spirit has found expression in constant and ethcient service; faithful 
and devoted zeal; watchful and wise foresight; careful and vigilant 
guidance. 

Made keenly aware in this hour of death of the genuine and true 
companionship and leadership that our friend Reverend Albert Teal 
Dunn, Doctor of Divinity, has shared with us so genenuisly. 

We therefore are resolved to place on our records this testimony of 
our loving and resi)ectful gratitude t(^ him; and to communirate the 
same to his familv and friends. 



10 ANNUAL KKPOKT OF THE 



Hnnivcrear\>. 



The ninety-third anniversary of the Society was lield in Lewiston, 
at the Pine Street Conjjre^ational Chnrch, on Sunday evening, April 
l'.»th. The churches in the city generally united in the service, fillinu 
the audience room of the church. 

Hon. Percival lionney, the newly elected president of the Society^ 
presidetl. 

After the organ voluntary an anthem was sung by the choir of 'the 
church. 

Tlie invocation and reading of Scripture were by Rev. J. E. Wilson 
of the Pine Street Free Baptist Church. 

Prayer was offered by Rev. N. M. Simmons of the liaptist Clnirdu 
and it was followed by a Response by the choir. 

President Honney then gave an address stating briefly the origin 
and aim of the Society, and giving a very interesting account of the 
life and varied activities of lion. Samuel Freeman, who was practically 
the founder of the Society and promoter of very many other benevo- 
lent and philanthropic organizations. He then spoke very fittingly 
and feelingly of Rev. Albert T. Dunn, D. 1)., its last i)resident, sa 
recently decea.sed. 

The Report of the Trustees, written by Rev. F.ewis Malvern, Port- 
land, was then read by Prof. A. W. Anthony. 

After singing tlu' hymn, "O Word of God Incarnate", the address 
of the evening was delivered by Rev. Smith Haker, I). D., ])astor (vf 
Williston Congregational ('liurcli, Porthind. 

His theme was "The Bible, the ]}ook of books": it is'prominent 
among books because of the truth it reveals and the person it rei)resents. 
"Not only is it more than any other book, but it is different from any 
ntlier book, aiul the only inspired book of authority in the world." 

The speaker, after telling how the Rook has lived and stood all the 
testa of the centuries, gave an interesting account of its increased 
circulation in the last few years, and closed with mention of the fact 
that th«* Rible has imbedded itself in the life and literature of onr age; 
that it could not be destroyed without destroying with it evc^rytliing 
th.it Ih distinctive to our civilization, and all that is tender or enno- 
bling in human life. 

A generous collection was taken up for the work of the So(!iety, 
an<l the Renediction was pronounced by llev. P(»rcival Marst.on, pas- 
of the Pine Street (Church. 

It wail an iuKpiring and In-lpful m<<-tiiig.
